Besides the issue I had above, the Slate is a premium product. Only thing I disliked about it was it was too big for me, 12' is awkward imo also was heavy. Not a lot of accessories either.
I gotta agree. I only notice that when using it while in the bed. I don't notice the weight so much, but its too big to be comfortable while laying down. But I still do it... cause that screen is so so good.

Just a heads up, Ive had nothing but problems ordering from Adorama based out of NY.

Ordered an ipad from them through ebay a few years ago arrived in a generic box with no charger, and a cracked screen. They refused to refund me or accept the return.

Ordered a desktop pc from them via amazon back in Jan that was $400 cheaper than retail on msi's website. It arrived with no graphics card, different color panels where the gpu was supposed to be boot issues and the case was scratched. Item was mailed back in February and they didnt respond to amazon or myself until May. They purposely waited so I couldnt dispute.
Refused to adhere to amazon's atoz guarantee. They claimed they were open during the pandemic and never received the item for three months. They removed the return label from Amazon and refused to respond to Amazon when they called them directly.

They would respond to my emails and mock me and lie that the item was no longer for sale. It was still on sale on newegg(via adorama) and on msi's website. They didnt respond when i linked them to it.

They saw the atoz and refunded me half of the money but Amazon's atoz says they should give me full refund. Amazon refuses to refund because it was a third party seller and it will "count as a strike against them" despite having multiple reviews similar to mine on amazon and ebay.

Filed a BBB report and they replied they got a computer with "half the hard drive space as advertised" returned and said they didn't respond to Amazon's atoz guarantee (back in early may) because of a "Jewish holiday, the store was closed for the weekend."

BBB had them respond and they said they wont refund. Nothing has happened since.

There are tons of similar complaints and reviews to mine. Do not do business with this scam of a site. They will send you the wrong prodcut
I received an incorrect size manfrotto dslr bag from them once and it was a headache getting a refund after returning. I wonder if they actually ever refunded my credit card.

I bought an m3 open box from best buy for $249 and loved the screen but I admit I wanted more of a tablet experience and was disappointed in getting around by touch. If I wanted a dedicated Chromebook with using it as a tablet less than 5% of the time, I can recommend this
I use mine as a tablet 95% of the time, absolutely love it. I find myself trying to swipe from the left side of my phone screen to go back now because it's so much more intuitive on the slate

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 10.5" vs Google Pixel Slate 12.3" Tablet?
If you want long term software support, buy the Pixel Slate, an iPad or even a Surface. I have a Tab S5e that is about 15 months from it's launch that is still waiting for and update to Android 10 and is already reduced to quarterly security updates. There's a reason Samsung is the last one making premium tier Android tablets. Android OEMs don't like supporting devices after the sale.

i bought a i5 model last year but returned it. I was hoping it would replace an ipad (gaming) and surface pro(work, etc) for an all-in-one portable device. For media consumption this device was great. The screen is awesome and the front speakers are good. However, the i5 had issues with android gaming. Games that wouldn't lag at all on a phone or ipad had issues with simple scrolling. I'm not sure if it was the lack of memory or the poor emulation back to i5 but it was not tolerable. Ended up returning and still waiting for a better all-in-one device to this day. I think at this rate i'll eventually just buy an ipad pro.

At this price point i'm very tempted to try to i7 model and hope the extra RAM and additional patches/updates has somehow fixed the previous issues.

I have the i5 version of this and would not recommend it to anyone. While the hardware feels premium, it runs a half-ass OS. Yes, I know that it's designed for just web browsing, but it's trying to do more using Chrome. That sounds nice on paper, but it's just poor execution IRL. Google can't seem to figure out the basics on this OS either. For example, it was a pain to try to switch tabs in the browser. None of the Android apps work well on it either because it'll only install the phone version (not tablet) on this (which looks terrible). Anyway, I would only buy this again if Google use new (non-Chrome) OS on it.

Depends on usage. I took the m3 back to get the amex sell deal. 599 on Dell for the 256gb s6 +120 amex cash back + 4%tcb. If you want a Chromebook is recommend the pixel. If you want a tablet, get the s6 (coming from someone who loves their pixel.xl2)

Yeah. I really want to love it, but it seems like they (Google) is trying to do too much with it and getting away from the original idea... Seems like they want to build an OS that can do everything Android does. However, they already have one -- it's called Android... 🤷 ♂️

If you want just a tablet ipad pro is the way to go imo purely due to app optimization and support. I feel like google doesnt give a shit about support on the tablet side or even much care about the chrome os side anymore.
